BurlyCon Financial Assistance and Scholarships
It’s our goal to make BurlyCon accessible to everyone! We’re committed to providing opportunities for those who might not otherwise be able to attend our conference. This year, there are three avenues for financial assistance: Scholarships, Volunteering, and Payment Plans.
BurlyCon Tuition Scholarships
Each year, BurlyCon allots money for financial aid for community members. This year, we’re offering 5 Registration Only Scholarships* and 1 Full** (registration with a shared hotel room) Scholarship to promising individuals with demonstrated financial need. Applications are now open! Please scroll to the “Click To Apply” button to apply.
Application opens February 1st at Noon PST.
Deadline is February 28th at 5 pm PST.
Notifications will be sent out by March 15th, 2017.
All information collected is confidential, and the names of the Scholarship winners will not be published or posted to the public without the express written permission of the awardees.
BurlyCon is a volunteer-run organization, with plenty of opportunities for those who wish to help out! Day-of-event Volunteers who contribute 16+ hours of work will receive a 2017 conference pass in acknowledgement of their time. Interested? You’ll find more information on the Volunteer page (insert link here).
If you know volunteering is for you, fill out the Volunteer Application here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
